Dear Future Citizen,

I imagine you are living in comfort now. Everything is convenient for you to barely get out of your seat and the temperature in your home is always nice. Your entertainment and needs are nearby and the only outside obligations you have is to work to pay for these things readily available at your fingertips. I suppose your choice of inconveniences are to either be a little bit sweaty or having to get up off the couch. Although this is highly presumptuous, these conveniences of yours is the result of hard work, brainpower, and removing the energy the earth needs to thrive to power your devices and services. Us humans in 2017 have known about global warming ever since the 1950’s, and with little known efforts done, we haven’t helped out enough. I imagine the politics surrounding the issue is still being battled, as corporations supporting the use of fossil fuels are trying to make as much money as they can. However, the future is about fixing the pasts’ mistakes and I hope that the world is in a better place than it is now. The damage that we have done in our human history can still be fixed, however it is in your hands now. I wish you luck and comfort in your future.

You should’ve reduced your carbon footprint, should be using some source of renewable energy and be a vegetarian by now.

 

Dear future generations,

It’s never too late to make a difference. Our actions have very real consequences. We can educate ourselves, learn from our mistakes, and take action. We can hold companies like big oil and big plastic accountable for their negative impacts on the environment. We can educate ourselves and others about what causes climate change and what actions we as individuals can take to lower our carbon footprints.

 

I promise to take shorter showers.
